Unscheduled Appointment

I called my doctor around noon today because I am having a sharp pain in my stomach where I have a ventricular shunt. I just wanted to know if there was something I could do about it. She told me she wanted me to come in this afternoon, so I did. I showed up at 1:00 & waited an HOUR to be seen. At 2:00 they took me back & hooked a fetal monitor up to my belly. I stayed hooked up to the monitor until about 3:00. They came in around 2:30 & she said Jarrett had a drop in his heartrate, but after that it went back up. They ran bloodwork, a urine test & an ultrasound. They said everything was looking pretty good, but they were worried about his heartrate dropping. I have to go into the hospital tomorrow evening & have another stress test done & then another on Monday. I'm praying that was a fluke & he is perfectly fine. Hopefully the test tomorrow & Monday will show everything is okay. I'm still having a sharp pain where Jarrett's legs & feet are kicking me. Please pray for us that everything will go more smoothly & without to much pain.

My precious Nannie called & read this Bible verse to me off a prayer card:

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6,7)"
